What to bring on a hunt

Get ready for a lasting experience

The Africa bush is not an easy terrain and your hunting experience will be rough. To make sure you are ready for the Africa sun and sky, we recommend packing the following with your gear:

  • Sunblock over 20 SPF
  • Raincoat
  • Sunglasses
  • Camera
  • Rechargeable batteries
  • Flashlights
  • Power adaptors
  • Binoculars
  • First aid kit equipped with bandages, burn sheets, aspirin, and Imodium
  • Insect repellent
  • During winter seasons, ensure you have a thick jacket as nights will get very chilly. Jackets are also recommend for those cold summer nights
  • Enough socks and underwear (our rule is to always pack double!)
  • Hat

Life on the spoor

Floral surprises on Africa’s southern tip.

South Africa is recognised as one of the most biodiverse countries in the world. Although probably best known for its enviable populations of megafauna such as rhinos, elephants, giraffes and lions, South Africa has even more to offer thanks to its incredible diversity of landscapes.

20,000 Plant species are found in South Africa, an astonishing 10% of all plants found on Earth.


Faunas you might encounter.

Thanks to the foresight of conservationists past and present, South Africa remains blessed with abundant wildlife. Best known are the mammals, and the best known of these are the famous Big Five: elephant, lion, rhino, leopard and buffalo. South Africa’s bushveld and savannah regions are still home to large numbers of the mammals universally associated with Africa.

South Africa is home to well over 200 species of indigenous mammals.
